Second Century Ventures Brings Cloud Computing to Realtors(R)

WASHINGTON, DC -- (Marketwire) -- 01/16/13 -- The National Association of Realtors®' venture capital fund Second Century Ventures has become a strategic investor in Symform, a revolutionary, distributed cloud backup service.

"Second Century Ventures was created to help develop and deliver real estate industry technologies to Realtors® so they can best serve their clients and customers," said Dale Stinton, SCV president and NAR chief executive officer. "This investment in Symform will give Realtors® access to electronic data management resources they can use to organize and protect the information of home buyers, sellers and investors in the real estate transaction."

Unlike traditional data center storage, the Symform Cloud Storage Network encrypts, shreds and globally distributes data. This technology provides a secure and high-performing cloud backup system. Customers join the Symform network by contributing excess local drive space and, in exchange, receive free cloud backup.

According to the 2012 NAR Member Profile, nearly all Realtors® report using e-mail and desktop or laptop computers every day, nearly eight in 10 reported daily use of smartphones with wireless e-mail and Internet capability, and most also heavily use contact management, document preparation, and electronic contact and forms. With approximately 4.7 million existing-home sales completed in 2012 alone, each with their own contact, contracts and supporting documents, the need for effective data backup solutions across multiple platforms is evident.

"Symform's unique decentralized solution is particularly suited to the business needs of NAR's members," said Symform CEO Matthew J. Schiltz. "Our cloud storage offerings will allow Realtors® to safely and cost-effectively backup real estate transaction data and help them organize that information to best serve their clients."

Second Century Ventures is a venture capital fund focused on promoting innovation in the real estate industry and helping to enable the entrepreneurial spirit of real estate thrive. SCV has been fully capitalized by the National Association of Realtors®. NAR can provide immediate strategic value to Second Century Ventures' portfolio companies by allowing them access to the vast resources of a 300-person organization with expertise, influence and power that comes only by being ingrained in an industry for over 100 years.

The National Association of Realtors®, "The Voice for Real Estate," is America's largest trade association, representing 1 million members involved in all aspects of the residential and commercial real estate industries.
